Citation CIT5000 Acoustic Guitar
(Chicago, IL USA)
Wondering what this guitar is worth and what people think of it. Citation CIT5000 Acoustic Guitar. Made in Made in Japan. Looks like possibly rosewood back & sides. Solid top, maybe spruce.
Adjustable saddle. Can you help.
This guitar was manufactured in the 1970's. They were distributed in the U.S. by the Grossman company of Cleveland, Ohio.
The guitar has Mahogany body, laminate top, rosewood fingerboard, chrome hardware, black pick-guard.
I found several for sale on the internet. Most of them were selling for around $125.00.
I also looked at the Blue Book listing and there was no information available about any of the Citation guitars.
There were no reviews available on the internet. I would tend to think that it is a guitar that is not of particularly high quality as witnessed by the low sale price and the fact that the top is laminate.
Some people say that the guitar looks like a Martin Dreadnaught copy.
Hopefully this information will be of some help to you.
